How he was utilized in WWE: "If you don't fill that particular prototype or idea then you are going to have a more challenging time in regards to a push. I feel that the company could have been behind me a lot more but not just me, they could be behind a lot of guys more."
His reputation outside of WWE: "I think because I made a name for myself outside of the company I can't be recognized as a WWE guy. I was never made by the company and I do think that was an issue... they don't have that stamp on me because I made a name for myself all around the world before entering."
His stance on wrestling politics: "If you play that political game you stand a much better chance of succeeding in a particular role or position. I'm not a politician, I am part of a different generation. I don't see the need in playing these games, especially when the business is suffering."
Being paired with Lay-cool: "I think the biggest effect they had on me was relaxing me, up until that point I had been more of a fighter, more sports orientated less entertainment based. If I had been more of a fighter in WWE then I probably wouldn't have lasted very long at all."
Crossing over to MMA: "I am a professional wrestler, it's what I've spent the last 13 years crafting. Of course I have a lot of respect for MMA fighters but a lot of pro wrestlers go into MMA, get their butt kicked and then their reputation for wrestling is harmed, I wouldn't want that to happen."
